do you contemplate pitbulls are be set to?
i hav a pit/mutt/labrador he's so cute but everybody i know thinks pitbulls r mean do you?
And to those empire who say they are mean 80% of the dog attacks this year were from Golden Retrievers NOT PIT BULLS!!
pit bulls are not at all mean, they are one of the most loyal dogs you can own. They are made mean by people who fight them. its not in attendance nature at all. I have worked for a veternarian for several years and enjoy only seen one mean pit.
I love pitt bulls they're awesome.
They're only as aim as their owner trains them to be.
Nope, its ALL in how they are trained by their owner. Pitts get a bad pet name because of irresponsible owners NOT because they are a bad breed.
The belief that every appendage of one breed is mean is the equivalent of saying that every man from Alabama beats his wife. Its an uninformed judgment that has zero statistics to back it up except heresy.
I own 3 dogs- the smallest one a Shiba Inu is the most aggressive- he had to go to boot camp for two months- he come back a happier obedient dog.
When raised correctly they are brilliant dogs that can pretty much excel at anything.
Look at the history of this breed although technically they are not a recognized breed.They were bred for fighting and that intuition remains in that dog today.Some countries have disqualified these completely but as others have said it is not usually the dogs fault but the owner who have no idea that these dogs require a very firm hand and one and only people who know what they are doing should own them so in some degree their reputation as a suggest animal is unwarranted.It seems to be a macho thing to own a pitt bull and these are the wrong reasons for owning a dog as these associates never train their dog allow it to be aggressive and perpetuate their bad reputation
No, pitbulls are not essentially mean. They just want to please their owner. They are loving and very loyal pets. If you train yours to be suggest it will. But, with good training they can be great pets!
NO, any dog can be plan depending on how they are handled. I hate that people hear the word "Pitbull" and instantly surmise mean, killer, etc. They do not deserve this stigma that has be so unfairly attached to them. My Staffordshire, AKA Pitbull, is the sweetest girl ever, she is a big lap dog. They got this reputation from when when they used to be war dogs in the "Pit", they would fight to the death because they enjoy a high pain tolerance. My Mom had a Jack Russell/Cocker Spaniel mix who be the meanest dog I had ever been around. He attacked my 1yr old nephew as he be walking past the dog, not even looking at it, doing extensive damage to his face. If folks would just put the stigma of these wonderful dogs in the past where on earth it belongs, and give them a chance they would be rewarded with a loyal, loving, best friend for their natural life.
I don't think they are "mean" I really believe it is how the dog is raise. But I will say, just my opinion, that I have an idea that pit bulls definitely have a stronger genetic to attack or be more vicious than say a lab or a golden retriever, etc.
Its the ignorant owners who don't know how to handle them.
Its adjectives just a bad rap--Not the dog..
Its the HUMAN.
With kisses as expected.
Each pitbull has a different design. Some come from bad breeding, others from GREAT breeding. You'll notice that pitbulls from obedient breeding practices tend to be more socially "nice" than those that come from Billy down the street that has "two badazz pitbulls nice big thick solid blues" that he's throwing in a room together to mount.
Anyone that say pitbulls are naturally nice and "it's just how you raise them" is in recent times trying desperately to make pitbulls look like a fabulous dog. This is quite the disservice.
American Pit Bull Terrier are TERRIERS and as such, own the desire to SEEK and KILL things. This is only natural, their original design be to kill other animals. This was their first and only intent.
When folks start telling others how much work pitbulls can be, and how disastrous it WILL be if you do not take the proper precautions, after I think this breed will see a 180 in opinions approximately it over time. Preaching the good but never giving warning is only setting pitbulls up for anticlimax.
Socialize, socialize, socialize. Obedience classes. EXERCISE.
These are three important keys to the sucessful rearing of your pitbull.
they are NOT :)
it just depends on what the entity has taught the dog
Pitbulls or any other breed are not close-fisted. Yes they are more prone to aggressive behavior, but it is the upbringing that makes them mean. Pitbulls have gotten a unpromising reputation because the idiots of the world think it would be fun to watch two dogs tear respectively other to shreds. I have owned several pitbulls and they were the sweetest most loving dogs I have ever certain.
i dont i think its how ther raisid
